1. How did your interest in photography begin?

I was given a set of oil paints in 1998 and I began to paint. I used photographs as inspiration, but never looked at my photographs as “art” and my camera was a film point and press so I had no patience with the wait between shot and having the image in my hand. I loved the instantness of the onset of digital photography My husband gave me a DLSR as a birthday gift in 2006 my photographs have been stacking up just for me ever since.

2. What genres of photography are you more interested in?

I love all genres of photography my least favourite would be portraiture, I detest having my photograph taken and I always feel that that others must feel the same.

3. What has been the highlight of your photographic journey?

I don't consider that I have had one, I joined MMPS September 2017 on the basis of the “millers mother” photograph in the Melton Times, I had met that lady and her image told her story. Eclectic would be me.

4. Who has been an inspiration to you in your photography?

I cannot name any photographers but people who made me look and see - Leonardo Da Vinci a man before his time and a genius - Hieronymus Bosch for bravery I am surprised he wasn’t burnt at the stake, Salvador Dali because he changed things and created his own art.. and David Attenborough I am deeply jealous of all the places and all that he has seen but I can sit in my armchair and wish I was one of the photographers who capture the wonderful images for his programs.

5. What are your aspirations for the future?

I MUST LEARN TO USE MY CAMERA I have never used my camera out of auto!

My life has altered considerably in the last few months so its “watch this space............?”
